I had a blood test last Friday (early morning, before taking levothyroxine), which was 4 weeks after the blood test that led to my diagnosis.
The new results are TSH >100 (0.4-4.0), free T3 3.29 (3.1-6.8) and T4 9.12 (12.0-22.0).
My first results were TSH >100 (0.4-4.0), free T3 0.872 (3.1-6.8) and free T4 1.59 (12.0-22.0).
[I also had results from my first visit to the endocrinologist 4 weeks ago, 3 days after the first ones but a different lab - TSH 240 (0.55-4.78), Free T4 2.1 (11.5-22.7) and Free T3 1.5 (3.5-6.5)]
I know they are still awful but I am so pleased that they are in the right direction, T3 even just creeping into the normal range! I've only had 2 weeks at 25mcg and 2 weeks at 50mcg, and I already feel tons better than I did a few weeks ago. It's up and down, 2 steps forward and 1 back, and I know I'm far from OK with many symptoms only just beginning to show improvement, but I have much greater hope that I will get there! Tomorrow I go up to 75mcg, and then will have another blood test and will probably go up to 100.
In further good news, my cholesterol has dropped from 8.4 to 6.0 (4.0-5.7 - same lab).
I hope this will encourage other people newly diagnosed who are scared and worried, as I was 4 weeks ago.
